11:00pm
thought we were on the ifert first game that wouldn't be a loss and their star player and couldn't stop it and back of the net and the ref is blowing the whistle. >> it's horrible because the goalie -- one mistake is a goal and the goal in soccer is huge. this guy said "i'm going to make a great photo. we have photos of you making saves" and the photos went up and i was shocked. it was just horrible. after those photos were posted there was a lot of tension and i didn't want to go to school. i felt like taking time off. i didn't want that attention. i
11:01pm
didn't want that negativity. >> we decided we had to do something and eventually we found this great picture of him making a save and the three or four of us at 7:00 p.m. made it the profile picture and about an hour later and it exploded and starting with the soccer team making it the profile pictures and the girls did and the whole school got involved. 100 people liked it, commented on it, tagged them in and made it their profile and the entire site was covered with it. he came to school the next day like he was 10 feet tall. once he had that confidence he was throwing himself out like a rag doll. one game hammering shot and shot and shot and he makes the best
11:02pm
save i have ever seen. he was parallel to the ground and did a superman dive and 10 seconds later the ref blew the whistle and we won. >> i started running and people were chasing me and wow best moment of my life. i changed from the freshman kid to danielle quie, the best goal keeper. >> the whole school stood up for someone who needed it. >> he was a normal kid just like us. we have our highs and lows and that's when we realize that we were all danielle quie. [applause] >> nice job. that is more normative than bullying. that -- i mean that pink shirt day
11:03pm
in canada. two upper classroom in nova scotia and a kid was teased and aggressively treated because of a pink shirt and they wore pink shirts and everyone in the school wore a pink shirt and once a year kids wore pink shirts to school and kids started a group in iowa and nobody knows the identity and started twitter and tweeted to show the support for the person treated badly on twitter. that is more normative and if we share that information with our kids then they will respond in kind. they will be encouraged. >> and i will leave you with that thought. i think anne got it right and if i leave you with that thought that alice is doing is broadcasting this idea of
11:04pm
you speak up when you see bullying occur, and what we're doing is taking the power of our platform that reaches almost a billion people what you all with us need to do is come up with programs that enable that to happen. this is the most inspiring thing i have seen and we need to replicate that in every high school around the world. >> i don't know if adults can do it. i think we have to create the space. we have to give them space to do it themselves somehow. i don't know. maybe it's a school climate thing. it's a conversation that we need to have. moving on to officer holly lawrence. her work is so inspiring to me. i read a story in texas and expulsions and suspensions are a direct pipeline to the juvenile justice
11:05pm
system and the punitive approach doesn't fix anything. i can happily point you to that study and makes cases against that school discipline, but holly has come up with a really wonderful solution within law enforcement that we would love you to talk about and it's preventive and solution. >> thank you. it's not going to be a shock to you that i don't have a sizzle reel but i did manage to get a few powerpoint slides in so it's a good thing if i can get my next one. can you advance it for me please? so it is a safety course that i created with yahoo. we partnered together. i started asking questions the first day so my boots are on the ground and i'm in the schools and i love doing what i do, and i believe wholeheartedly and i
11:06pm
believe it was the soft power -- yes, i love it. i think it's effective in so many ways, so i had luckily teamed up with the right people at yahoo who were really amazing and just the foresight they saw, and believed in the concept that law enforcement needs to be a piece of this puzzle and have some solutions. we have a unique part in the schools and with kids and this did get certified for the peace officer standards and we get credit for that being police officers and our training and our curriculum -- i have a slide. hopefully -- it started as a diversion program for the restorative justice and sort of a piece of the pie, almost
11:07pm
geared towards probation and after a kid was in trouble for some violation i asked what happens to these kids? what programs are out there for them? when i am dealing with kids in possession of naked pictures of other kids. what are they going to do when i cite them? i didn't have answers or ones i didn't think were a comfortable fit when kids had these problems and started with kids after they were already in trouble and grew out of that because there was so much need in the school on the prevention side too, so it really is -- if i can get to the next one, the next slide. so yeah it's a proactive and reactive approach so it started on the reactive side. i think law enforcement is good at reacting to things so started with a program with the at risk kids that were already
11:08pm
violators and grew to a prevention tool in the schools that law enforcement can present and oftentimes there are great nonprofits that have amazing programs but for a law enforcement officer in uniform to present it and not serious enough but my kids are going to get that i worked at cartoon network today. that's serious. that's what my kids are hearing about tonight, but law enforcement has a serious tone so we created this program for officers to present to schools and to pta's and to faith based organizations and any community group that wants to hear it. we have the hour long safety program and started with digital safety as the kind of umbrella but it touches on -- i agree i don't like the term cyber bullying. kids don't use that and it's bullying and it's drama. everything is drama now
11:09pm
but law enforcement needs to look at the piece of social media and what it plays and taking the phone is like cutting off the arm and parents are not understanding the disconnect and it's a divide and how kids communicate today and how parents communicate and helping parents parent in this digital world and helping kids make smarter decisions, so they don't have to worry about friending the college recruiter and them taking,a way their scholarship or anything like that. it's also looking at trainings for law enforcement officers -- when i go to a school and has a knife and on the honor role and never had any problems so it would be easy -- well let's cite you for possession for the knife and you will get suspended and have consequences and on the way, and you start asking questions and what is going on? what is
11:10pm
behind this? i am being threatened and i was are withed about my safety and there is a bullying issue and i brought a knife to school because i am scared what is going to happen on the way home, so you have to look past just what is going on with the initial "what do you have?" and dig deeper, and it's just some tools and some help, but law enforcement can be involved with. >> and that's what we're hearing too with facebook when things come up in facebook for example or instagram or twitter and the tip of the iceberg. what you see is not what you get. it might actually be somebody victimized retaliating or against or reacting to something that happened off line or at school. do you have examples
11:11pm
of how bullyings and targets can change hats? >> with that example he went from a prerp prerp traitor to a item in the same conversation. we get the uncomfortable nobody wants to deal with situations. i know that nobody wants to look at a kids having naked pictures of other kids and it's something that elephant in the room. i don't want that. that doesn't happen at my school. i didn't see their phone. i didn't see any of that, but you need to take hold of that and own it and get that out there and make the difference and change the behavior and make it serious and when law enforcement -- we don't have a lot of laws in place. i say all the time "it's not illegal to be mean to each other" and i tell that to adults and i can't tell you
11:12pm
government officials "i have free speech. i can say what i want" and they have good arguments. i will give them that but you need to show them -- and law enforcement needs to show them it's not okay and we take it seriously and i do counseling for issues that originate at school and social media, whatever it is but as part the solution and we are standing up together and saying it's not okay. >> and holly this is no longer a local program, correct? >> it's amazing the response and law enforcement and everybody is looking for tools and answers to get some solutions and so we took it to washington dc earlier in the summer, so we have been working with maryland and virginia and all over california and hopefully washington soon and really excited to get
11:13pm
everybody interested with the information. >> somebody asked how do you implement a restorative justice program? do you have that answer. >> that's a good question and it's definitely county specific in california they noticed because i have done training in this program in different counties and i always invite the local da and the probation department and there are nuisances in every state and county and everyone wants to help. no one says no. they ask what they need to do to get on board and everybody is making it work and ways of it fitting in their system. >> there are a number of definitions of restorative justice i noticed and going to bullying prevention conversations in the country. some of them areis bad on native american tribal practices and i remember one teacher of
11:14pm
restorative justice that did training in a lot of schools and talking about how there was a child who had offended another child. i guess some kind of social aggression problem and they created a circle of justice where each party brings, both the victim and the offender bring in people close to them and the offender was asked "okay who do you want to bring in with you" and he was a foster child just new to his latest set of foster parents and didn't know them very well and wasn't comfortable with bringing them in. didn't really know or trust anybody and that is another thing. i think we need to define trust for kids. they're not sure what that means and finally lee and i can get you information about his program. i can't remember his last name now. he finally asked the
11:15pm
child is there any adult at school that knows your name? and he said "yeah the janitor". only the janitor knew his name and we called the janitor and asked will you sit with the child in the center? and he said yesterday. absolutely. he loved that boy and there was real resolution as a result of that circle of restorative justice. there are amazing programs to look into if your school is interested. we have six minutes -- if that, right bosss? so if anybody has any questions for these amazing people in si verse group of fields the floor is open to you. >> [inaudible]
11:16pm
>> did you just search right now. >> [inaudible] >> i didn't say this -- do not share it widely because you can't yet. >> you can eventually. >> i wanted to give everyone a sneak peak. we're going to launch the video in october so this was just for your eyes only. that camera over there -- do not broadcast that or else my friends back at facebook will be really mad at me, but on october 1 we will launch it and i will make sure that you get it. i think it's a great video and i want everyone to see it. >> (inaudible). >> thanks for bringing that up. i forgot to put the disclaimer on that it's for your eyes only. >> [inaudible] >> question over here? >> a little bit of a question, a little bit of a comment -- well, more of a comment. first i want
11:17pm
to say that i am excited that law enforcements and nonprofits and da's are in the room. a lot of conversations sound promises to the future. one of the concerns i had coming in and not to take away from bullying as the target of the conversation but one of the concerns is discipline of individuals and bringing up the restorative justice model earlier and in california and the country and vast disparities from people suspended and expelled from schools and african-american base and a teenos and often expelled or suspended for things that would typically not merit that type of reaction from administration and authorities at the very least, so in the last panel and this panel i was thinking about social and emotional learning and i see that as a double entand ra. i
11:18pm
think it's also a negative thing and this is why. there is a lot of social and emotional learning going on in these schools and especially around the group of individuals suspended and expelled at alarming rates and things of lesser things and goes back to messaging. what type of messaging situations are we imparting on these kids that get suspended for a couple of days and feel guilty or don't have the opportunity to express themselves and for the social emotional training they didn't receive up to that point? and don't know how to deal with it and get in trouble for reacting the way the culture decides is non conforming so i say that to say this and i like the
11:19pm
comments and i don't find myself often agreeing with district attorneys but i like the last comments and i would regurgitate some of the comments for us to think about going forward and not necessarily having an agenda but what we all want, so they went something like this in terms of what we can do. i don't like it when people are taken advantage of. social justice -- getting education is a social justice issue. we don't want kids to feel they can't go to school or go home. we want other's worth intact and appreciate the worth. justice is a public face of love and 60% of kids who are discipline read likely to drop out of school, so if we attach the same concerns that we have for all of the students and comparing with the evidence base data that suggests there are a lairming rates of suspensions
11:20pm
and explullions and how does that push the conversation or do other things that we are innovative with and coming up with real solutions? not just to bullying but all of the social factors that affect students and adults and there are several adults that need training as well. that's my point. >> yeah. actually the work place bullying institute which has good data i am told and found that 35% of american employees say that they have been bullied in the work place. that is about double over the figure for kids so this is not a kid problem, but so are you asking if there should be programs and campaigns aimed at minority students as a different kind of solution? and we can i can ask you of that first and
11:21pm
then to the panel. >> in coming up with ways in we handle perceived discipline situations i think there are better policies than responding like one of the district attorney's said and hard first and soft after. the thing is not just district attorneys which is a much later process so they can kind of be absolved of the immediate response -- >> and called in as a last resort. >> exactly but there are school police and administrators that operate under the hard first mentality and in my opinion as an individual person it seems unfortunate, and so i only pose these things because i don't see them talked a lot in public forums or in she's situations and talking about race and these things and being uncomfortable
11:22pm
and challenging the seed in the conversations, in the back of our minds with these conversations i see it as important. i don't have all the solutions and answers but i think it's important to add that perspective to the conversation. >> point well taken. >> i have the answer. >> okay. alice has the answer. >> i don't mean to be facetious and worked as a teacher and nonprofit organizationses, both in media and out and now for a for profit company if we spent as much money and time as training teachers as i became a teacher i think my big skill coming out i went to nyu and bachelor's in elementary ed. i could thread a projector with the best of them and my career in the 70's and in the last panel "if you had all the money
11:23pm
what would you invest in?" . i would invest in education and we're not investing in the future of the children and the in the country and the global future of our world and i agree absolutely with everything you said. we're short changing our kids and not giving teachers the resources. there is mold in the teacher's work room. if i worked in the building that many children go to school in i wouldn't go to work either and in answer to your question there is a priority here about education that's not quite right. >> and while we're earmarking money i would totally support that and i feel that we should train teachers in digital media. you can't teach cooking out a kitchen, so we need to bring digital media into the
11:24pm
classroom so people can practice in the environments they're in all the time outside of school. >> and i would say that having listened to the word "media literacy" as far as back when i was carrying 3-inch quarter cassettes years ago and it was a great job. it really was. to teach media and digital literacy out of context is a fool's error and we have the boring curriculums in the world and teaching it out of the context. >> we have to stop blocking. >> yeah. i don't know. >> somebody -- okay. >> teachable moment. >> i hear everybody talk about -- >> thank you. >> yeah. so i have learned the phrase "teachable moment" since becoming a resource officer and i try to incorp rat that with a
11:25pm
discipline situation and i try to use the teachable moment with the parents as well so you can move forward all together instead of just making everybody upset. >> i have some comments actually responding to what you asked about, the zero tolerance and different proposallity. one of my colleague and looked at this across the last 15 years and noticed a trend what we called "net widening and net deepening" and more behaviors that fall under expulsion and suspending and when talking to administrators and their policies he found it helpful to speak of these terms in termses of behaviors and rather than saying we're criminalizing you and the think language is also
11:26pm
important and i want to thank you for bringing up that point. it's something that i really advocate for and our caution to use zero tolerance and exclusionary discipline policies and also i teach teachers at san jose state and hundred students who are future teachers. >> can they do a projector? >> no. my teacher did, but again using social media, integrating all of the areas is so important for the prevention. thank you for that focus too and i think that gentleman has comments. >> i was going to follow up in the conversation with digital media or literacy needed within the educational system. we are still experiencing digital divide and access and just the one you speak of recently officer when you mention the
11:27pm
generations and investigators not engaged with this media and no don't know my book or face space and when you have to look at youth culture. we talk about texting and sexing and omg and i didn't text anything to you. i spoke to and part of the language and how they engage so until we look at the culture of young people and how do we impact today's 20th century media culture we can't make a huge impact in regards to bullying or electronic aggression or whatever name we want to place on it and is affecting the students and i am excited you're addressing this issue and it's a crucial time for this generation and if we don't take serious this conversation today and action tomorrow we will see more and more issues arise.
11:28pm
[applause] >> and i'm going to cap it up and i totally agree with that and one of the resources i want you to point is out is the family institute on line and platform for good a couple days ago. anne was there for the launch in dc and the goal of this whole thing is connect parents, educators and teens together to talk about both the eat your peas and how you stay a digital citizen and do the whole thing and i encourage everybody to check that out and i think that's the type of resource that will get us to where we need to go. it's called a "platform for good .org" and part of the family institute. >> yay. i think that's the way to cap it off really. let's
11:29pm
lose the fear. let's bring -- it's safety, risk prevention, online risk prevention, whatever you want to call is is not the goal. it's important but not the goal. it's the mean to the end and the end is full safe effective successful engagement in participatory media and culture and society. this is a participatory medium that we're talking about in a network world. we're are in this environment and network participatory environment and our students need the tools. they need social emotional learning is a key tool and technical and literacy and media is behavioral so this has just been a fantastic day. thanks to all for coming and
